Welcome to The Plastic Free Portal. We’re on a mission to make it easier for the good folk of the UK to cut down on their plastic usage. The fact that plastic is a massive problem for our planet is well known. The degree to which our every day lives contribute to that and the simplicity of making a change is less known.
Take a look at your day, from the moment you wake up to the moment you go back to bed, plastic is everywhere. We brush our teeth with it, we wash and clean with it, we store things in it, we eat from and with it, we drink from it, we carry things in it, we buy food wrapped in it – and normally, we throw it away. Once you’ve seen it, you can’t unsee it; plastic is everywhere and sadly, plastic is permanent.
When you realise how big a problem it is, it’s easy to think that’s it’s too big for small changes to matter but that’s wrong. If every piece of plastic that hits our oceans is bad then it’s only logical that every piece avoided is good. Every single time you avoid using plastic you make a difference. The problem is not too big. It is worth tackling. Your efforts are important.
Whether you’re looking to move to a life without plastic or simply to reduce, we have tips, motivation and most importantly, as many plastic free or reduced plastic products as we can find.
So, if you want to cut your plastic usage but don’t have hours or weeks to find the alternatives yourself, you’re in the right place. Just click on the Shop link and see how many reduced plastic options there are to let you live your everyday life with just a little more of that “doing good stuff” glow. If you buy something through a link on this site I get a small commission but don’t worry, it’s a thank you from the retailer and wont cost you a penny.
